Marlin 60 with a 18 shot tube?

Discussion in 'Marlin' started by AllAlaskan, Aug 29, 2010.

  1. Ok I was talking to a friend of mine the other day because im looking to get another 60, one that I can use for my hunting and banging around in the brush so I can restore my dads back to factory and refinish the stock so some day I may pass it down to my son.

    ANy way , I was talking to a buddy of mine about them and I mentioned some of the older 60s that had a 18 shot mag tube and he told me that the 60 was never made with a 18 shot tube. I could have sworn I have seen some with them but hes telling me its a aftermarket kit. If any one has any info on this I appreciate it. Also if I do happen to pick one up that does not have the 18 mag tube how difficult would it be to put one on and how would I go about it.

    You are right.The Model 60 had a 17rnd tube makeing it an 18shooter before the 1980,s and a 14rnd tube after the 80,s making it a 15shooter.I believe it was about 1985,the same year they came out with the auto lock open on empty that they reduced the tube capacity to comply with some state law. ,,,sam.

    The Marlin 99 series & several bolt-/lever-actions had the 18-round tubes...
    some folks ordered the longer tube & follower and did their own exchange on 60's.

    The pre-1985 model 60's & the 990 had 17-round magtubes & 22-inch barrels.
    The 99/99C/99G had the 18-round tubes and 22-inch barrels.
    Reference the Stoeger Gun Trader's Guide & I've got a 99-G.

    The longer barrels were needed to keep the magtube from sticking out too far & looking silly.
    So make sure you have a 22" barrel before attempting to slap a longer tube on it ;)

    Oh, there are a few years of 60's with Long barrels & 14-round magtubes to keep New Jerky (Jersey) lawmakers happy.
    If you find one of those, it's the perfect switch for a Marlin 81/81C/81D/81E/99-series & 49-series/92/97 tube mags.

    The Marlin 57 has a 19-round tube mag & 22-inch barrel ;)

  4. Ok I was just wondering. Thanks for the replys, both of you :D I was just curios because if I do pick up another one soon if i cant find one with a 18round mag on it I wanted to find out if you can. I guess I will try to keep my eye out for a 22inch barrel. If not o well lol. I want a 60 that I can tinker with. Something that if I do have to drill or cut or any thing to that effect its not on my current 60.

    So the longer tubes are they a direct plug and play or do you have to trim anything or something to make the 17 round tube fit onto a 60?

    Direct plug & play as far as the action connection :)

    Use the tube holder that comes on your rifle, the one from the new part (if included) may not be placed in the same spot.
    They're only held in with a pin, but the rust factor comes into play quite often on used parts.
    And if you get one from something other than a 60, its likely to be in a different position.
    So just slide the new tube assembly into the OEM holder on your rifle.
     
  6. Awsome thanks. I Called my buddy up that works at a local pawn shop and he said they have every thing BUT a marlin 60 or 795 lol So I call the local wally world and same thing. I did find out that they bumped the prices up on all the 10/22s up here to around 300 bucks brand new! couldnt believe it. Told em that I will stick with the good old marlins any way lol. So im ganna look at a few diffrent pawn shops in a couple days and see if I cant find a model 60 used for a decent price. Im hoping my buddy gets one in at his pawn shop because some times he can get me a little bit lower price but we will see. He says he gets them in pretty often just none there at the momant.
     
  7. I just left a site that sells to dealers and I looked to see what dealer cost was on the model 60 black synthectic stocks and blued steel thats tube fed. It's less than $125.00

    Yes, Marlin made Glenfields and they are the same gun. The Model 60 you are seeking is called the 'old model'. They can be marked Marlin, Marlin/Glenfield, and Glenfield. The old models are somewhat difficult to find...I bought mine with a broken stock at a gun show for $40.
    Quite a shooter with a "load it on Monday and shoot it till Thursday" attitude. LOL
